Not Much Progress -- Potty-wise

I realize it has been a while since I last posted something. Truth is that I love this little video so much that I have been reluctant to post something ahead of it. And, there has been little progress on the potty front.

We get sporadic cooperation when it comes to the potty but mostly we encounter real objection. Given Beth's contrarian nature, we aren't pushing it. Daddy managed to get a "number 2" from her last weekend (to my complete amazement).

Her argument against the big-girl, small-girl thing has gotten more sophisticated. It tends to go something like this:

MOM: "Don't you want to be a BIG girl and use the potty?"
BETH: "No, I'm small. Elliott is BIG "(her emphasis)
MOM: "Don't you want a dry diaper. Wet diapers are icky."
BETH: "No, I like wet diaper. It's warm..."

Okay experts. How do I deal with that logic?
